However the Academic Guidance Counselor made a terrible mistake and Stanford ended up rejecting his application. In the Orange County Movie Colin Hanks only has one day to repair things so he can attend the University. His brother Lance was a drug addict and his mother was an alcoholic. Colin Hanks father John Lithgow had psychological issues.

Although Black tried very hard to secure his brother’s figure, his loser persona kept him hilariously missing his mark. This film is only 81 minutes long and was directed by Jake Kasdan and written by Mike White. Other topics covered in the Orange County Movie are Sex, Drugs and the importance of Class Associations. Being born in Orange County myself, the movie struck a nerve and made me ask myself where my life was going at Shawn Brumders age. We think this is a great movie for teenagers since the movie managed a PG 13 Rating due to some last minute editing.

If you’re gonna watch this movie, it’s a great one to watch with some of your teenage friends. There’s is a lot of that great SoCal Association mixed in this movie.
